‘He was gone’ – Denmark doctor confirms Christian Eriksen went into cardiac arrest in harrowing moment against Finland

Journalist Mattias Karen has shared one of the comments from Denmark national team doctor Morten Boesen as a press conference is being held in regards to the nasty collapse of Christian Eriksen.

Boesen is reported to have confirmed that the 29-year-old suffered ‘cardiac arrest’ in the deeply concerning moment, adding that Eriksen ‘was gone’ before he was resuscitated.

Thankfully, the swift actions of the medical team and the likes of Danish defender Simon Kjaer, Eriksen was revived after just one use of the defibrillator.

Boesen added with ‘I don’t know’ when expanding on ‘how close’ we were to losing Eriksen, which really goes to show how fortunate we all are following the heroic actions of the medical team.

Here’s how fans reacted.
